Community Policing is an organization-wide philosophy and management approach practiced by the Boonton Police Department that promotes:
Community, government and police partnerships
Proactive problem solving
The purpose of promoting these items is to address the causes of crime, fear of crime and other community issues.
Having Community Policing Officers provides citizens a better opportunity to voice concerns and promotes creativity of the officers. It allows officers to work with residents and community workers to find new solutions to old problems.
